      I so agree with you!

    Frank Ocean slayin live! #channelORANGE

    • Nacole July 15, 2012

      That’s the thing I love about Frank because he is so good LIVE! Right now i am listening to a song from his mixtape called “Nature Feels”,it is so my DAILY fix!

    Damn!! ..Dude is only 24 and ALREADY has gray in his beard?!

    *Meh..* ..Guess all that ‘c***-sucking/booty-hole nibbling’ “DL Activity” sure can put some miles on a n****!

    @TGJ staff, I might have missed it(happens from time-to-time), but on which chart is Frank Ocean #1?! I’m now on Billboard, and was just on hitsdailydouble – where is he #1..?!?!

    ..And that picture/his face?? ..Is that his “Gangsta-DL-Thug ‘If-I-cant-get-no-d***-tonight-s***-gone-pop-off’ mean-mug”?!?!

    @Sam, you can push this dude as much as you’d like, HE IS FINISHED! “The gays” don’t want him, and R&B/Hip Hop will NEVER again accept him! FRANK OCEAN’S CAREER IS FINISHED.

    Hmmm.. I wonder how all those black women who caught that H** from DL/Bisexual/Gay black men feel about Frank Ocean? I mean, after all, according to the latest CDC fact sheet, it IS Gay/Bisexual Black Men who are infecting unsuspecting, innocent black women at ALARMING RATES! “I don’t believe you,” you now say?! Well, here, read for yourselves. Have a look at the chart:**/topics/aa/ <– Here's the CDC chart numbers:

    White gay/bisexual: 11,400
    Black gay/bisexual: 10,800
    Latino gay/bisexual:6,000
    Black str8 women: 5,400
    Black str8 men: 2,400
    Latina str8 women:1,700
    White str8 women: 1,700
    Black IDUs (intravenous drug users): 1,200
    Black female IDUs: 940

      You sound so stupid, desperate,and extremely bitter. What’s your real beef w/ Frank Ocean?

      • Nacole July 15, 2012

        His beef with Frank is that he is jealous because Frank is showing the world his talents and because of that it also shines the spotlight of how weak other artists are and in this case,I’m talking his obsession Chris Brown who flopped like a big fish last week even with all the press he has.

        Fact is Chris can’t sing and he is overexposed…..

    • truth tea July 15, 2012

      you mad he never had to make pop music to sell unlike your flop fave fist brown?

    • Nacole July 15, 2012

      You sure are graphic in your description of what you assume Frank does.Why would you as a straight man (which I highly doubt) because of your obsession with Chris Brown be so concerned with what Frank does?

      Now you are crazy enough to blame Frank for the spread of H** but the spread of H** is prevalent because of unprotected s** of any kind.

  4. JohnVidal(RIP Whitney-truegreat) July 14, 2012

    He sounds exactly like in his records. Good

    PS he dont belive in God even satan knows that God is real.

    • virtuoso intellect July 14, 2012

      that has nothing to do with nothing. he is not a preacher. he’s an artist and that audience was out there to be entertained not listen to sermon. his faith is his business and his only.

  6. Nick July 14, 2012

    that X Y Z person needs to go burn somewhere., please let the music & talent be what’s discussed here. H** has nothing tomdo wi being gay/bi., it’s all over the world just like hate so stop it & help make positive change.,

    The first time i got to know abou this guy was when he worked with Brandy on a song called Surprise Ending (unreleased-2008). I had to google him coz the song blew me away. I started checking for his music ever since then and Brandy kept talking about how much of an amaizing artist he is. I wish all the r n b artist the best in trying to bring back the genre. It looks like its a good year for r n b with promising releases from Neyo, Brandy and Trey. We will be fyn!. Am also checking for Miguel and Luke James. Good luck to everyone.

  8. virtuoso intellect July 14, 2012

    smooth performances. the audience was lapping it up

    • X,Y,”and Z” July 14, 2012

      @Virtuoso Intellect re: July 14, 2:37 pm —

      “..audience was lapping it up..”

      Be honest, I bet you “bent-over and made it clap” after saying that, didn’t ya?! Why must you ‘flaming hot-tub f******’ always gotta make s*** sexual?

      For the record – those WERE NOT his “fans”..!!!

      ..They were Frank’s relatives, and folks from the clinic who had high-risk s** with ‘DL gay/bisexual black men’ who just found out they’ve just converted to “Seropostive”. Frank’s manager promised ’em a free dinner and a bus ride. They had nothing better to do, nor had no where-else to be.

    Hey @x,y,z did you read the report you posted? It said absolutely no such thing. You’re such a hateful bigot you live your life scapegoating and judging other people. I’m sure you go around preaching about people being sent to hell, when your only life goal is making life a living hell for other people. Who are you to act like you actually care about people with H** anyway? You’re obviously so full of hate that you most likely don’t even have a caring bone in your body.

    • X,Y,”and Z” July 14, 2012

      @TBOZFAN10 re: July 14th, 2:52 pm —

      K, so…if you read that CDC fact sheet, you’d see that the rates of H** infection for black women are more-than double that of/for black men – 5,400 vs 2,400! And the rates of infection for gay/bisexual black men are 2x that of said str8 black women – 10,800 vs 5,400!!

      So from which group are black women catching H**? Logically, it can’t be the group that has a transmission rate LESS-than theirs – less-than 1/2. NO! Rational tells us that it MUST be one that is HIGHER: Gay/Bisexual Black Men!

      Listen, if you’re a woman (hopefully a “woman” born with a uterus, fallopian tubes – you know: “Lady parts”), don’t let the compulsion for “f**-hagging” get in the way of common sense and logic, K? Let me ask you this, now knowing that Frank “f*** your god” Ocean is a DL brother. Would YOU have s** with him, as a str8 black woman?

      “Who are you to act like you actually care about people with H** anyway?” <—O~o..

      ..Holy "knock-head logic", Batman, it's the Riddler! He's struck again! Yes, Robin, and this time it's a doozie! We'll need the Cray Super Bat-Computer to part the moss and untangle the vines. Quick, Boy Wonder, to the Bat-Cave..!!

    • Nacole July 15, 2012

      X Y and Z also hate women which is why he dogged Rihanna so much because of Chris Brown and now he target Frank because in his warped mind Frank is responsible for Chris Brown’s lackluster sales with FORTUNE….

  10. Tbozfan10 July 14, 2012

    Oh and also x,y,z it’s pretty obvious this picture is ya know photoshopped. He doesn’t have a grey beard, neither does he have an orange head you f**kin dumbass lmao

  11. Ohdeam July 14, 2012

    “#1 LP” where? At iTunes?! LOL That’s a hack chart that no one takes seriously and you know it. I can’t with Sam and his Frank worship. Every day we’re gaurenteed to get at least 2 new articles on this Nancy-boy. The picture is becoming more and more clear…Sam wants Gaga and Nicki’s clothes and Frank’s d***.

  12. WizKey July 14, 2012

    Enough about Francine Rivers.

  13. Yallhoesaintready July 14, 2012

    I was there and let me tell you he slayyyyyedddd!!! he sounded just like the record, it was amazing. The show was sold out and packed. He also peformed Thinking about you, pyramids, sweet baby jesus (WTT) monks, super rich kids, and for the finale he sang I miss you ( beyonce) and I got life

  14. DIGGER BEY July 14, 2012

    Gotta get his album next week, to see whats the fuss about! Im a fan of music period! And if an artist is making critical acclaim music, im definitely checking for them gay or not. Well only if its fits my main music prefence. Which is Soul, Hip Hop and R&B! So n the words of others…..SLAYEM FRANK LOL ….@XYZ Something clearly is wrong with u! Really! U need help! I have watched u bash Kelly so much, I started praying for her, thinking ur lame mental no life ass would start stalking her. I dont think u even like her like that. Because u dont like p****. Ur just Obessed with her! Like the fake Em following Mimi n Obessed! U gotta be a fa*got. So stop it with the Frank bashing. Ur gay, while he’s bi. And CB is mostly likely on the dl, while ur talkin about Frank and a***. At least he’s out and women know about him. Unstead of ur fav on the dl.

    • Nacole July 15, 2012

      You ought to download his free mixtape to it’s called Nostalgia Ultra and it is the damn truth!

      I already bought Channel Orange on itunes but Tuesday i will be going to get the cd as well!

  15. MC&TB4LIFE July 14, 2012

    U guys never seem to pay attention to Frank but eversince his coming out, you started reporting things about him. Pure gays at ThaGrapeJuice, no wonder ya’ll hate Rihanna.

    X,Y, and Z.Why don’t you read CDC fact sheets about silly ass n****** that don’t have s*** else to do with their time except try to bring other people down. I’m sure your picture will be posted right next to the definition.

  17. X,Y,”and Z” July 14, 2012

    @Brandon Gillian, Digger Bey, and NIck —

    Why the defensiveness? Why the hostility? I’m absolutely sure Frank would disapprove..

    K, tell you-all what, there’s only ONE ‘life preserve’ left, and only food/water for one – we hungry sharks are best with two, but one will suffice. YOU three, Brandon, DiggerB, and Nicki, you NOW get to “Play God”:

    1.) Frank Ocean.

    2.) ‘Wheelchair Jimmy’.

    Brandon, Diggger, Nick, there’s only room/supplies for one – NOT TWO! And whoever YOU three choose, HE then goes overboard, and you three MUST then “join in” while the we maneaters feed..

    If there is indecision by you three, if the jury is not unanimous, then Frank remains the default, and becomes “fish food”. Trust, I can EASILY mask my IP address/identity and flood the Urban Blogs, then ringing-up serious “anti-frank” hostility!!

    X,Y,”and Z” – waiting… (tick-tock, time is running out for “pretty bottom-boy” Frank…)

        @FireIce re: July 15th 12:42 am —

        A bitter, obese, blues-singing white woman, and a whining, self-absorbed, over-hyped bisexual black man; what a pair, the two, ‘eh?

        Those two are a feast for the poets, psychologists, and spiritual advisors..

        Adele?! ..Listen, once the money runs out, the baby-daddy is gonna leave her and she’ll be back again to singing the blues. But by that time, no one will care.

        And Frank Ocean?! ..After 115-125K..?! “The Gays” don’t/won’t claim him, nor every again will R&B/Hip Hop.. Frank Ocean is a walking H** post card. You’d think it’s all some vast, well-orchestrated conspiracy by the pharmaceutical industry: Make H** “acceptable”, if not “chick/cool”, watch the ‘H** Infection’ rates skyrocket yet higher, and wait for the profits to roll-in!

        Oh, and make NO DOUBT: the H** INFECTION RATES for black women are OVER 2X for what it is for Str8 black men – WHY?! How so?! ..Simple, these innocent, unsuspecting black women are becoming infected by DL Gay/Bisexual Black Men!

        Enter the (once)DL Bisexual Frank Ocean..

        X,Y,”and Z” — OUT..!!

  18. Tbozfan10 July 15, 2012

    Again, “x,y,z” the link posted facts and statistics but YOU are drawing conclusions and placing blame where you want it. You are not a scientific expert and there are no scientists to back up your claims. There are a lot more factors to take into consideration and not everything has such an easy answer. Besides, YOU don’t care about H** victims anyway, so why are you fronting? You’re so full of hate you could never care about anyone’s suffering but your own.
